OK, so far W Magazine wins for most festive December issue yet! 

2012's most popular covergirl, Marion Cotillard is featured on W's extra red December issue wearing a red Dior coat photographed by the imaginative Tim Walker.

The editorial spread within is equally as red and fantastical, with Cotillard posing alongside a toy soldier in everything from Dolce & Gabbana to Valentino Haute Couture (it wouldn't be a red editorial without some Valentino after all).

And while Cotillard appears confident and powerful both in her films and countless magazine editorials, the Oscar-winning actress admits to still having difficulty doing sex scenes.

"I hate sex scenes," she says. "...I hate being naked onscreen. It's very weird to imagine how a person would have sex. It cannot be your way. Otherwise, it would be super uncomfortable and overly intimate. Everyone has a way to have sex, so a character does too. I mean, kissing is very powerful. You feel something, you know? It's really intense to kiss as another person."
